I, too, just installed 2.99.48pl2 on Linux (2.0.27, Alpha AXP, though).  I
had very few problems and it is now running well, although not in
production yet.  Specifically, smtpserver accepts connections and hands
mail properly to router.

I did need to comment out some IPv6 stuff in the include files, but that
was it.

Sorry I don't have any real constructive ideas, but I wanted to let you
know that it does work on Linux.

See ya.
